Lock horizontal or vertical

Feature Request

Brief title for your desired feature: Lock horizontal and vertical while pressing a hotkey

How would you like the feature to work? in schematic and PCB layout mode holding CNTL and dragging a piece would lock the movement into a vertical OR horizontal only movement. Basically force moving in a straight line.

Why is this feature important to you? Sometimes you don't want to move freely or by the grid. You just want to move precisely to the left or down or whatever



Hi, when you holding the Ctrl or ALT key, you can move canvas vertically , when you holding SHIFT key, you can move horizontally.


@Tutorials I'm not seeing what you are seeing. Perhaps we are miscommunication.

As an example: In PCB mode, I'd like to be able to drag a component left (right click drag), hold down a single key (i.e. shift) and have the software prevent the "Y Location" from changing. Also drag a component downwards, while holding the same key and prevent the "X Location" from changing. This can be accomplished using a single key for horizontal AND vertical by programming the software like this:
This is hard to explain verbally so I drew you a picture: https://imgur.com/a/8m32i
